The name the Monies were transferred to in Canada was Robert Stevenson as confirmed by the Bank of Montreal manager we met last September 22nd. The account has since been closed as all this happened in May 2008. When we get to the UK on October 6th we hope to be able to go to the Lloyds bank i Lewes Sussex which was my mothers bank to get to see the papers that someone must have signed to transfer these monies. As for the Executor, this was also the LPA for my Mother and yes we have our suspicions but no proof yet. When I talked to my friends (now retired) who was head of the crime division in Ottawa he said for him the number one suspect would be the LPA. But he only became the PA in 2010!!?? We are also trying to find out who was the LPA for my Mother in May 2008. I believe the LPA and PA requirements changed in the UK around this period of time.
Because he seems to stall and make excuses every time we have requested him to obtain from Lloyds bank the form that the transmitting bank (Lloyds) should heve for the funds thant were wired to the Bank of Montreal (BOM) in Canada. We need to see this to see who signed the form and to check the signature on same. This we are now hoping to talk to the Lloyds Bank when we arrive in the UK on October 6th. Also this same Power of Attorney is now the Executor of the will. We have no proof to accuse anyone and hopefully he is not involved. Once we have what the BOM Manager suggested we need then we can approach the respective fraud division where applicable
Thanks Clare, I will try what you have written above when I arrive in the UK on October 6th. I will meet with the Gentleman who WAS the PA until my Mother's passing and is now the Executor of the will, and we will go to the Lloyds Bank to see why they can not find the document that was used to send these funds to Canada and who signed the form. Until I get there I can't add any further comments.
Thank you for your help.
